That’s why we put together a list of answers to some frequently asked questions about eye surgery.
1. What Will Happen During Surgery?
You deserve to know what will happen during the surgery, and you also deserve to know what surgery entails. You can ask our eye doctor to go into detail during your consultation. We can give you a general understanding of what happens during the procedure and what to expect on the day of surgery.
2. Is the Surgery Safe?
Eye surgery can be intimidating. It’s normal to have some concerns about your health and wellbeing. Ask our eye doctors if the surgery is safe and whether or not you should consider other options.
3. What Does Recovery Look Like?
Recovery after surgery can be stressful, but you will feel better if you follow the instructions we provide you. We can help you get a clear idea of what will happen after surgery and determine if you need to take time off work or exercise.
4. Are There Risks or Side Effects of Eye Surgery?
Most health procedures come with some side effects, and some surgeries also have risks you should consider ahead of time. For instance, you need to know if surgery could leave you with any lasting effects.
5. Is There an Alternative to Surgery?
